Messiless Barcelona down Inter Milan
Lionel Messi was absent due to a fractured arm- sustained at the weekend against Sevilla- that will keep him out for three weeks but Rafinha justified being brought into the team by opening the scoring in the first half at the Nou Camp on Wednesday.
Despite Inter Milan goalkeeper Samir Handanovic’s fine form, he was finally beaten when Luis Suarez sent in a brilliant cross and Rafinha slotted home against his old colleagues. He was beaten by Jordi Alba late on in the game.
